The reason why the patients were moved to Spokane is because a military base with biocontainment facilities is in place. The advantage of this position is because it is close to the epicenter of likely North American penetration. Having patients in forward position dramatically decreases response time. Military is at a high state of readiness, I can hear the Blackhawks every day and night from my house. Its been about 3 weeks, so we will have another couple weeks before we know what kind of situation we can expect. This is not the situation in any other country. There will be a pandemic because the untracked infection vectors will produce symptoms over such a wide geographical area that inevitably, a local health system will not be able to move fast enough. I'm thinking Asia in general, SE Asia in particular, will go up quickly. Meanwhile the unknown, untracked vectors will be spreading undetected through central Asia. The media noise/signal is about to go to 10 especially if it is found the virus wasn't contained at ports of entry domestically. Basically all governments will go into emergency response mode, and coordination between countries will become swamped. International cross border trade is on the table for shutdowns, which makes numerous locations, primarily high-density urban centers, with nearly immediate shortages of food, unless rationing is mandated. The militarisation of the world's governments will be swift and martial law will be imposed, I'm sure, across much of the Earth's surface. Under cover of these actions, various players will maneuver for advantage, at least, their military command and control. Expect the markets to moderated by an invisible hand, but in the aftermath consider what a backlash against governments, in general, might entail.
Its not a question of having enough test kits, enough vaccines (3-4 months away minimum), enough masks... for millions it will be access to food.
